In case integrity matters

The Center for Public Integrity has published a devastating indictment of President George Bush and his closest advisers, which documents the avalanche of prevarications that launched the (undeclared) war in Iraq. Appropriately, it is entitled, "False Pretenses."
President George W. Bush and seven of his administration's top officials, including Vice President Dick Cheney, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, made at least 935 false statements in the two years following September 11, 2001, about the national security threat posed by Saddam Hussein's Iraq. Nearly five years after the U.S. invasion of Iraq, an exhaustive examination of the record shows that the statements were part of an orchestrated campaign that effectively galvanized public opinion and, in the process, led the nation to war under decidedly false pretenses...
Click here to read the shocking/depressing truth about how America was duped into diving into a quagmire that has cost it so dearly in both treasure and blood. That, dear reader, without accomplishing a damn thing to make the Middle East or America itself safer from the threat of terrorism.

Have you had enough of petitions, rallies, and protests that have not worked? The Republican party and their conservative members appears insulated from the public and unresponsive to the public. However their contributors do not appear insulated from the public and can collapse under pressure to a withering telephone campaign threatening mass boycotts of their products until they get their friends at the GOP to do what we want.

Would you and your organization consider joining these telephone campaigns and spreading the word to your membership, and fellow progressive groups in your newsletter? I have created these campaigns to peacefully take back America. After you have made these phone calls please send me email to info@democratz.org with the subject CALLED.

Thank you.
